What’s a Content Management System?
A Content Management System allows a user or group of users to manage the content of a website (or any application that publishes content). Users can log in, access the content of their site and make changes really easily. When changes are saved the website is updated immediately. Making your website work with a Content Management Systems guarantees that it’s easy to update anytime you want, and you don’t have to wait for someone else to do it! You can add new pages or change existing content whenever you like.
Your website’s content is stored safely in a fast, secure and reliable database and you can log in to your CMS and make changes anytime - 24 hours a day.
